Semichem was founded by the Kerr family in Ayrshire in the 1980s, operating as a discount health and beauty retailer. When bought by Scotmid Cooperative in 1995, the chain had 25 shops. A dedicated stream of investment and marketing saw Semichem expand rapidly across the towns and cities of Scotland and Northern Ireland and become a major high street and household name.
